Colicchio shreds, waffles in Minneapolis, soccer great Ossie Ardiles, ridic ramen in Tokyo.

As we prep for this weekend's big Food Is The New Rock rally in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, let us look back at some of our most-popular stories. We found 10 great food and drink options in Minneapolis and caught up with soccer legend Ossie Ardiles. Mississippi chef John Currence explained why bacon is overrated and we dug deep — and flew far — to figure out what the best airlines to drink on are. Oh, and we phoned Sammy Hagar to find out if food is the new rock. What do you think? Hit us up at @FoodRepublic.
